Unhappy Newbie and worried

Hi,my name is Jayne and I'm 29 years old.
Hmm where do I start,well I guess the problem started around 6 years ago when I started to get a funny feeling in my head,it just felt 'full' if that makes sense like there was a build up of pressure in there,after a while I convinced myself I had a brain tumour and I suffered badly with panic attacks for months,it got to the point where everytime I got one I thought I was guna die,I told a couple of family members but they said I was being stupid My mum realised just how much they were affecting me but I was too scared to go to docs about it. In the end my mum said she would come with me and when I got there I broke down in tears and let it all out about thinking I had a tumour,he asked a few questions and then he said it might be something to do with my sinuses so off I went to the ENT specialist,anyway turned out they were blocked and I had an op to drain them but it never got rid of the 'full' feeling but I just lived with it,over the years I've suffered on and off with the attacks but not really felt any worse,some days I will feel dizzy for no reason and I can be walking around and feel like I'm bouncing if that makes sense! I have a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders but over the past few weeks I have had a constant ringing in my ears and my ears feel full and sometimes it even feels like they are wet inside,again I'm terrified of going to the docs cos of my brain tumour theory and everyone just thinks I'm silly for thinking it. Sorry for the long post but any info on what it might be would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Hello Jayne I unfortunately did have a brain tumour but it wasn't all doom and gloom I successfully had it removed and am now on the road to recovery. Try not to get yourself upset and stressed worrying if you have a brain tumour ask your doctor to send you for a MRI scan as it will then put your mind at rest. I had none of your symptoms with my tumour and I'm sure your family are just trying to cheer you up. Hope all goes well for you.

Hello Jayne - this is my 1st post and i was drawn to your post as i too have some symptoms in common with yours.
I feel slightly weird in the head but i think it is because i too am feeling fullness in the ears as well as across the cheek bones just under the eyes and across the bridge of the nose.I don't feel any wetness in the ears like you but i have a high pitch noise in my right ear;it is not really loud but it is there.I also have aching around the ears as well as down the neck behind the ears.No dizziness but a bouncy feeling in my head as i walk.There is also jolting movements in my head in all directions depending on how i am moving.The internal off-balance feels like it is coming from the ears area.
Do you sometimes feel slightly trembly and jelly-like inside as well as tired?
Lastly i have to say to you that it is ok to be scared as it is human nature to fear the worst.However it is much more worse and silly not to get these thing sorted out.
I too am worried but am waiting for a letter to see an ENT and hopefully get diagnosed or sent for further tests such as MRI.I would rather know what is happening than not so at least then there is a course of action to take to get sorted.
Let me know how you get on
ALL THE BEST
